This month, I picked up this model new price matched for $250 for my parents. In my home it picks up a ton of dust and dirt off the carpets, even if they were vacuumed the prior week or so. You should note that the video review linked above was less favorable in the editorial than his demonstrations. My experiences are decent with regards to what it picks up, so far.
I will warn you guys, these (and supposedly other) Dysons are prone to LOUD grinding noises on certain rugs/spots when in carpet mode. If you google you can confirm. At first I thought the vacuum was broken (happened on first test), but nope. That's just how they roll. Supposedly you can mod part of the bottom bar so it doesn't act like it's jamming. Additionally, someone on some thread I read said Dyson recommended using hard surface mode (suction only) for those types of carpet/rugs. Myself... I try to close my ears up and just grind through it... <.<
Consumer Reports recommends a bagless Dirt devil model which is like around $70-80. They say it has decent suction, and makes less noise. I would consider looking into that if I were buying for myself, or a struggling college student.
If you are on the fence, remember that this model is $200 refurbished normally at Frys, I think.
Sorry if it feels like self promotion... Just wanted to share my review on the machine. For the price the machine is junk, it fluffs up the little dirt it picks up to make it look better. There are much better machines, especially in the price range (normally) for this machine.
